BINGHAMTON, NY, APR. 12, 2014

Hurd Motorsports, promoters of the Broome-Tioga Sports Center, hosted their first motocross race of the season on Sunday, April 12, on a lovely spring day. Sunshine and blue skies as far as the eye could see were the weather conditions for the day. The forecast specified a high temperature of 62 degrees, but the mercury rose slightly higher by the end of the race program.

Track conditions early in the race program were wet and muddy in spots due to some serious rainfall prior to the event, but the track quickly dried out under the abundant sunshine and a brisk breeze. Riders were heard to exclaim that there was absolute traction everywhere!

Honda pilot Kodey Dean topped the podium of the 250cc Amateur division with a perfect 1-1 score. Austin Toomey took runner-up honors with consistent 2-2 finishes, and Brinden Lord completed the rostrum with a 5-3 tally.

Matthew Woodruff (179), Marcus Scutt-Cornell (5) and Austin Phoenix (99) lead the start of the first 250cc Amateur moto at the opening round of the Broome-Tioga Sports Center Motocross Series.
